How can I send email through workflow to an email field of a related object.

Hi All,

I am facing problem while sending an email alert through a workflow.


I have two object bound with master-detail relationship.

On certain operation of child object record, I want to send email to an email field of the parent object record.


Does anyone knows how to do it using workflow?

You cannot achieve this trough workflow. So my opinion is that you have to write a trigger on child object to do this.
